MAL­LAIG fundrais­ers do­nated £ 33,900 to the RNLI last year – but more vol­un­teers are needed to keep up the good work.

The fundrais­ing group held nu­mer­ous events in 2016, in­clud­ing a whisky tast­ing which raised £700 and a Hal­lowe’en dance that brought in more than £2,300.

Branch fundrais­ing group treasurer Audrey McKay said: ‘We have our own branch of RNLI fundrais­ers which has been go­ing for year. I have been the treasurer for six years now. But we are strug­gling at the mo­ment and are try­ing to re­cruit new vol­un­teers.'

The group's end of year ac­counts showed: Do­na­tions £9,930; branch events £ 8,923; recog­ni­tion cred­its £ 8,145, con­tri­bu­tion boxes £4,153 and in me­mo­riam do­na­tions £ 3,147.
